The late German pastor, theologian and Nazi-resister, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, wrote:
“It may be that the times which by human standards are the times of collapse are for [Christ] the great times of construction. It may be that the times which from a human point are great times for the church are times when it's pulled down.”
As a people and a parish, our November focus is remembering. To remember is to put the pieces back together - to re-member them - to take that which has collapsed or come undone and to set about making it whole again.
Re-membering is hard work.
This year, our stewardship and pledge campaign is rooted in remembering. Your financial pledge enables us to build, together, a 2022 budget that supports our mission of learning to follow Jesus Christ.
I invite you to join my family and me in remembering St. Clement's. In particular, I invite you to consider two opportunities:
- Increase your pledge by 3%
- Help us reach our target goal of 75% of gifts via Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG) or credit card
